I’ve been making Vegetable Beef Soup in the slow cooker for years but this week I thought I would change things up a bit and take the best from several of my recipes. This recipe for Slow Cooker Yummiest Vegetable Beef Soup is great because you can add the vegetables that you like best and it will still be delicious. As my family said, “the yummiest!”
- Optional first step – Brown seasoned meat and 1T. of oil in a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes (not totally necessary but this will help lock in the flavor)
- Place beef in 6 quart slow cooker
- Add vegetables in this order: celery, onions, potatoes & carrots
- Add diced tomatoes, beef broth, water & seasoning. (optional: add a few drops of hot sauce)
- Place 2 bay leaves in the soup.
- Cover & Crock on HIGH for 5-6 hours
- Add frozen vegetables equaling 2 & 1/2 cups – any combo of corn, peas, green beans, lima beans.
- Crock on HIGH for 1 hour more or until vegetables are soft.
- Serve in bowls topped with oyster crackers, if desired.
Note: Like many soups, this vegetable soup is more flavorful the next day!

In my crockpot, if I cooked this soup on high for 5 hours, the potatoes and carrots and celery would be mush. I think I’d put it on low for 6-7 hours. Have you ever tried it that way?
Hi Nancy, yes, I have…. Every crock pot is a little different, but the fun of cooking and crocking is doing things the way it works best for you. Happy Crocking!
found this recipe through google. made it today and it is freaking awesome! Thank you, bookmarked to try more of your recipes.
Made a crockpot full of beef veggie soup this week. Beef stew meat chopped up into small bites, sauted with some garlic and basil paste, salt and pepper. Fill crockpot with two cans each of green beans, sliced carrots, corn, peas, one can French onion soup, 1/2 bottle of V8, 1 large carton beef stock, some worcestershire sauce, additional salt, pepper, basil and garlic paste to taste, some hot sauce, etc, to taste. Cooked in crockpot on low all day. We think the V8 and French onion soup add a lot of flavor.
I plan to try this with Chicken and make a Chicken Noodle Veggie soup. I don’t know why not.
I don’t know why not either Cindy…. sounds YUMMY!
Try tomato juice instead of the water. Delicious
I want to double this, but I’m wondering if I should split it between two slow cookers
Noreen if you have the option, I would make in two separate crock pots, as it really does make a lot! Happy Crocking!
I have two crock pots going as we speak. Can’t wait to try it. Do you know if it freezes well?
I didn’t realize this is way too much for my crockpot. So I’m just simmering away on the stovetop. Anyone make this on the stovetop before? Curious how long to cook it, but I’m guess I’ll know by the looks of it.
Do you indicate anywhere on your recipes the size of crockpot to use?
The same thing happened to me. I just simmered it on the stove for about 3 hours. I didn’t add the water. It turned out great!
Is this for a 4 qt. crock pot?
How many cups is the serving size?
Sarah I don’t measure this by cups, but if you need to serve by cups, you can definitely do that it just may serve more than 10! Enjoy and Happy Crocking!

Is that not okra in the picture? I clicked the recipe bc I thought it was. I would LOVE to incorporate okra into my crock pot stew – do you know how without ending up with a slimy mess?? Thanks!
